What got you to where you are,
may not keep you there.

And even worse

Sometimes your initial strengths can become liabilities in a changed environment.

Many managers, directors and executives rise in companies because their strengths were needed at critical junctures. However, many times, even though the business needs shift, often skills have not. Without feedback, mentoring, and proper intervention or coaching, high-value strengths can get lost, and the significant investment the company has made in their leaders over the course of their careers is needlessly wasted.

Without dedicated effort, your rough edges and knowledge deficits will be anchors, holding back your career.

Coaching support at critical junctures can make the difference between getting your target job, or letting the other candidates out-compete you. If you want to move up, you need to learn what it takes.

Matching your long term value to the market need requires perspective, insight, and planning.

Because careers are so intertwined with our view of ourselves and how others see us, getting proper feedback and guidance can help in overcoming obstacles, both internal and external.
